The Serpent in the Sword is a paper by Lee A Jones studying early medieval pattern-welded swords. This video shows how to create a pattern-welded sword that actually has a serpent at its core. The sword making process while using modern tools is similar to the ones employed by anglo-saxon or viking-age smiths.
This is the same version as the original video but with an improved audio mix. As Youtube does not allow videos to be replaced, I had to upload the video again.
